Finding M92

M92 Cluster can be found in the Constellation of Hercules. It is situated where Hercules head should be. If you locate the double star Iota Herculis which is the furthest star making up his left arm, then move west and locate his right shoulder, this star is called Eta Herculis. M92 is between these two stars.
